Summary: I bought this player after my wonderful Panasonic player went on the blink. I have had problems with this MP3/CD Player from the start. The anti-skip is terrible. I have found when passing street lights, overhead police blue lights, etc., it will get stuck and will make a loud, screeching noise in my ear. I have had the volume rather loud at times when this happened. This terrible noise hurts my ear drums. Sometimes it gets stuck.
